GINMAKU 2020 situation
Grüezi mitenand, konnichiwa!
I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy under these very challenging circumstances. The situation around COVID-19 is unpredictable, to say the least. And the GINMAKU team is having a difficult time organising the next edition of our film festival, planned for June 2020.
We are closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 in order to come to a decision about GINMAKU. At the moment, we cannot tell whether the festival will take place as planned, or whether it will have to be canceled. We will keep you updated about the decision on our website and on social media, as well as in our newsletter.
Today the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan announced a travel ban from Japan to Switzerland. I have personally never felt both countries being physically and emotionally so far from each other. Every year GINMAKU’s wish is to bring Japan closer to you through wonderful Japanese films to create a cultural bridge at our festival. It would be really sad if we have to cancel our festival this year but we respect the current restrictions on events and put everyone’s health as our top priority.
We wish that you and your families are safe and stay healthy. The GINMAKU team and I love the Swiss style greeting. But these days, we choose our Japanese way: we take a polite bow to send you regards from our hearts.
Thank you for reading - arigatou gozaimasu!
With my warmest regards, Mizuki Mazbara Festival Director
GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival 2020
We are thrilled to announce the next festival dates: June 18 - 24, 2020 at Kosmos Zurich. Looking forward to welcoming you all!

The 2nd GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival
After all the long intensive months of preparation the 2nd GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival is over and it brought us a lot of unforgettable great moments! We still can’t believe that there were about 900 enthusiastic audiences coming to the festival and many screenings were sold out. We were so honored to have our special guests directors Kazuhiro Soda and Ryutaro Nakagawa. They made our festival truely a special one and it was heart breaking seeing them leaving Switzerland, realising that the festival is really over.
One of the biggest challenges we had this year was to screen twice as many films than in the 1st edition and organise the master class with director Soda at the university of Zurich. Thank you everyone who gave us a lot of advices and great spirit through hard times!
It would not have been possible without all of you who believed in our festival – thank you, danke viel mal, arigatou gozaimasu for your support on wemakeit. Thank you so much for being part of the festival and sharing our dream. So thrilled to create another cultural bridge between CH and Japan through upcoming Japanese films again. See you next year!
Festival Director Mizuki Mazbara
